News from Taiwan?

Discussion in the Around Asia forum
News from Taiwan?
I need to hear some good news with Tsao on the DL. And after Chen and Wang failed to make the parent team.

Reiterating what Frank posted, where is Huang Chia An and Huang Chun Chung? Also is pitcher Lin Po Yu being scouted?

Well, where is Chen and Wang? I know Wang probably ended up in AAA, but I think Chen is out of options.

I guess you're talking about outfielder Chin-Feng Chen. As for Chen, he's in AAA Las Vegas. [Link - Las Vegas 51s]

Haung Chia An is now in Arizona, Haung Chun Chung is in LA and will be going back to Taiwan for his 10-day military service in a couple months. As for Lin Po Yu, he has not been scouted and is still in Taiwan. Any interests in Lin? You are welcome to contact me any time!

Sam,

Thanks for the update. Sorry, I haven't been to this site in a while. I guess the Mariners are thinking about having Wu and Huang play together on a rookie level team. Makes sense to me - since Huang needs to be acclimated to the American lifestyle.

As for Lin Po Yu, I heard he was Taiwan's best amateur (high school level) pitcher. It's been a slow year, and I'm waiting to hear who will be the next amateur signee for a professional team in the U.S. or Japan.

Chin-Lung Hu replaced Scott Moore tonight at the Florida State League All Star Game, which I watched live via internet. Hu went 0-3 with 3 groundouts. [Link - Minor League Baseball]

Pitcher Hong-Chih Kuo was promoted to AA Jacksonville. In his debut (Sunday, June 26th) he gave up no runs, two hits, struck out 6 and walked only 1 in two innings. Kuo was clocked at 99 mph Sunday. [News MLB.com] [Stats - Minor League Baseball]

The Mariners signed another Taiwanese player today:
Kuo-Hui Lo, a 19-year-old outfielder from Taiwan. Lo, a 6-foot-2, 190-pounder, is a Chinese Taipei National team member.

That makes 4 Taiwanese kids in their system. I guess that's the benefit to having a full time scout based in that country.

Huang Chia An is pitching to a 1-2 record, with a 7.30 ERA, in 4 games so far with R AZL Mariners this year. He has walked 8 and struck out 10 in 12.1 IP.
